Looking From A Hilltop
Section 25 came from Blackpool, land of piers, amusement arcades and rides, Kiss-Me-Quick hats and violent pubs. They landed at Factory Records and in 1985 released this 12" single, following the previous year's album, an utterly groundbreaking and forward thinking piece of electro-pop, pulsing and throbbing, cold and northern. Produced by Bernard Sumner and Donald Johnson, it is one of the best songs Factory Records put out.
The other side of the 12" was this eight minute dancefloor version, which does not sound out of place now.
